Ethereal Essence (EE) is our extract of 4-AcO-DMT (sometimes referred to as psilocin or psilocetin) suspended in organic alcohol. This novel compound has been reported to increase creativity, energy, focus, improve relational skills, while reducing anxiety, stress, and even depression. Some enthusiasts also report that EE has helped them heighten their spiritual awareness and enhance their senses. While prescribed antidepressants can have a “numbing” effect on people, EE has been said to help resolve underlying emotional damage rather than push it away, thus shifting away from negative patterns of addiction and being stuck in trauma. This product is intended to be a support for those on a path of self-improvement and empowerment. Transcending ego dominant modes of living may be a side-effect of using Ethereal Essence.
One of the most compelling aspects of Ethereal Essence is the potential effect on the “Default Mode Network. ” (DMN) The DMN features in a range of mental activities, including daydreaming, self-reflection, and thinking about the past or future. And some studies suggest depression may be linked to an overactive DMN, possibly causing us to ruminate, over-analyze or criticize ourselves, and continually step out of the present moment to fret about the past or the future. This helps to explain the remarkable efficacy of psilocin and related substances in the treatment of depression and anxiety, with some patients even reporting lasting (six months+) relief from a single high dose of psilocybin. It could also help to explain how the use of these substances can lead to creative insights and perspectives that otherwise remain inaccessible. Positive lifestyle changes can sometimes be kickstarted by these insights.
Dosing & Effects
At macrodoses, its effects are comparable – although in some ways rather different – to those of psilocybin or psilocin. Most users report a full range of psychedelic visual effects, from color enhancement to vivid hallucinations, along with euphoria, ego loss, and mystical or religious experiences. Microdoses may be more appropriate based on your unique circumstances.
It’s also important to follow your usual routine while microdosing. The purpose is to enhance your day-to-day existence by integrating microdoses into your routine, so don’t change what you normally do. However, when you try microdosing for the first time, take a day off from work and social commitments. This will give you a chance to notice any unusual effects before microdosing in a more public situation. While it may seem like you would only feel the effects of the microdose on the days you actually take it, try to observe the effect on the two days between doses, too. Many people perceive increased feelings of flow, creativity, and energy the day after they microdose in addition to the day of microdosing.
Microdosing every day is not recommended. Because your body produces a tolerance, you might see diminishing returns after a few days if they are taken every day. Plus, the fact that positive effects can sometimes be felt many days after a microdose is a good reason to space out your doses. Another downside to microdosing every day is normalizing a very potent substance. You can compare it to the use of coffee for productivity purposes. When you drink coffee every day, over time you need to increase the dose to get the same effect. Within a couple of months, one cup turns into two, three, or four cups. It is best to leverage microdosing as an occasional advantage, rather than a consistent go-to like coffee.

None of this is intended as medical advice. 4AcO-DMT is among the safest of the tryptamines but it’s important to follow dosing guidelines on bottle closely. To avoid tolerance issues, space sessions 3-4 days apart and take on an empty stomach. This product is unlikely to be physically dangerous for most people if used properly and on it’s own. (not combining with other substances at all) It’s highly unlikely to be habit-forming. As with any nootropic/psychedelic, it should be avoided by pregnant or breastfeeding women or anyone prone to seizures, heart problems, blood pressure problems, or mental health issues like severe anxiety.
Use responsibly, in a good mindset, and in a good setting.
